You're gonna steal my TV?

I was outside this afternoon painting these chairs. Clearly, the kids were napping. Kids and paint don't mix. Unless the paint is washable and it's on a piece of paper instead of my nice chairs. Halfway through, I looked up and saw a stranger standing *INSIDE* my house. He looked pleasant enough so I said "Hi. Who are you?" He signed his name and said he was here for my TV.

OK. What?

We have a really nice TV. My first thought was someone is robbing my house...I'm glad the kids are sleeping. Then I thought, this is weird to be talking with a robber. But wait, it's too heavy for one person to steal. Before I could process my crazy thoughts, Brian walked in. Turns out 2 of his students wanted to borrow our smaller TV for game night on campus. Whew!

Back to those chairs. My step-father made them for us 7 years ago. He did a great job and I painted them white. Every year I scrape them and repaint the places that need it. I still like them white and I'm not interested in changing the color (because it would take me 5 nap times to paint a new color) However, after 7 years of white chairs, I'm ready for a change. Maybe a stencil or a monogram? Any ideas? I want something classy and simple. And quick and easy.

A fleur-de-lis stencil might be nice on your chairs. Very classy & doesn't go out of style. (Like the one I used on the blue/white shield my son is holding on his birthday party).

Either way they would look good I like the classic style they are now.

Oh, my gosh! The story about the man telling you he was there to take your TV cracked me up.

I love these chairs. I've always wanted some like that painted a nice, glossy red for my back deck. -Julia :-)

How about a vinyl design that you can easily remove later on if you want? Someone mentioned a fleur-de-lis (like this: A monogram would be super-easy. Shop around a little though, prices for cut vinyl vary wildly!

Another idea might be colorful pillows?
